A tanker vehicle carrying what is believed to be hydrochloride has exploded following a crash on the M6 in Warwickshire this afternoon. Ambulance services are treating at least ten people with breathing difficulties and many more motorists have been evacuated from the area. A police spokeswoman has said: “Due to the motorway being closed there is a massive tailback of traffic and we are currently advising people to stay away from the area.”
